Old Port of Spakenburg is finished before Christmas

Friday, December 23rd, 2016

A lot of hard work was done to finish the road and masonry around the old harbor before Christmas. From the 24th of December until the 8th of January the machines will be quiet for a while. The work will be paused during this period.

The Self Closing Flood Barrier around the historic port of the former fishing village is sunk into the ground. The second phase of the work will start after the Christmas holidays. The remaining 162 meters of the Self Closing Flood Barrier will be placed around the new port. Currently preparations are being made here for the placement of the Self Closing Flood Barrier. The quay wall will also be stabilized. From mid-February, a few streets will be raised to secure them against flood water.
